Miscevic: Rule of law, reforms crucial for EU integration


BELGRADE - Rule of law and changes resulting from rule of law reforms are the crucial element for improving the everyday life of every Serbian citizen, but also crucial for those dealing with European integration, Serbia's European Integration Minister Tanja Miscevic said on Wednesday.

The fight against corruption is equally significant, Miscevic told a conference titled Tackling State Capture in Southeast Europe: Delivering on the European Rule of Law Promise.

Serbia is close to launching a parliamentary procedure with the aim of implementing key amendments on the judiciary - on judges and prosecutors.

"Currently, we have a working group that has been set up not only multisectorally in terms of government institutions and the Serbian government but also includes civil society as well as professional associations." she said.

"The fight against corruption is not only about having the option of preventive measures, but also about having penalising measures and being as efficient as possible," Miscevic noted.
